RE: Sagging headliner

My headliner was sagging so I did a quick fix. Pulled the hanging slack towards the front under the visors and diaper pinned it tight.:B

RE: How many of us are there? Owners of Dodge based RV's?

We are putting up for sale our 1976 Avion RV for sale. 22 foot. It is on page 826 of this post. What might these be worth?https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/48435052832_2bd02ca960_z.jpg Link Absolutely a beautiful rig! Not sure what it would be worth. Considering the prices for the modern junk $10.000 and up would be a deal to the one that loves it the most.

RE: My generac diesel generator only runs with prime button

Same problem I had would only stay running while priming. Discovered by accident it ran fine with the fuel cap off. Turned out to be a clogged fuel cap vent hole.

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

As a youngster I on occasion found myself nearing homelessness. The thing to do then was to hustle up a resolve real quick. A good thing there were no tent city options at the time to cave to as I may of climbed aboard!

RE: Homeless migration to RVs creating problems

I own and love my 42 year old motorhome. Had her for awhile now. People think I'm homeless I guess. You can sense it now by the way your looked at. The ones in the $100.000 rigs when you pull up in beside them can be seen peeking through the shades. Don't pull in here don't pull in here... Different world now.

RE: Dude! Where's my tow truck?

I think the activation of the low oil pressure light was designed to provide an explanation as to why the engine has seized tight. Best install a pressure gauge and occasionally glance at the needle position.

RE: dog food for old dog

I put my Shitzus on a home made diet several months ago and so happy I did, both seniors. I have heard the dangers of salmonella so I scramble a couple of eggs and ad it to the mix every 4th day rather than raw. Chances of a dog getting salmonella likely pretty low though.

RE: RV Vinyl Trim Insert Sizing

I bought the 1" Camco about 5 years ago and it may have been too wide. I had to choose a hot day to bend it in but it works great. When you get it if it seems to be on the wide side, put it in anyway. Looks Great! Brian Hi Brian, thanks, hot days are no problem, may be to hot to go on the roof!

RE: RV Vinyl Trim Insert Sizing

I purchased a roll from my local dealership and replaced all the trim on my previous TT when it began cracking and breaking because it got so brittle. I think I paid something like, $12 for a 100 foot roll. I took a piece of the old trim that wasn't cracked to my dealership parts store and they matched it, off the shelf. I replaced everything on the camper and still have, probably 50 feet left. It's white, but the trim on my current camper is all black now. When you begin to insert the trip, start with one side and lay it in the track about a foot long. Then pinch the trim and insert the very end into the other side of the track. Once started, you can just pinch in the middle and slide right down the track. Cut to length only after you've inserted it. The biggest problem I had was the tail dangling, and it wanted to uncoil all twisted. Then, I did it it 5-6 foot sections over the gutters area and would have to move the ladder again. So the roll was laid on the roof so it wouldn't pull out what I just inserted. It was easy, but a bit frustrating until you get the hang of it. After I caught on how to do it, the rest went very fast. As stated above, don't stretch it. That's why pinching in the middle and just letting it self insert works so well. After it was inserted, I waited about 10 minutes before I cut to length at the ends, and then I left the ends about 6 inches longer to allow for some shrinkage after the immediate install. After a few more minutes, I trim back the 6 inches, leaving and extra inch and tuck it under. The little end caps screwed on top of the fold. Good luck, and have fun. It's an easy job, just a bit tiring working from a ladder for almost everything so long. Thanks for the great tips Dutchsmansport, looking forward to doing it, should make a big difference!

RE: RV Vinyl Trim Insert Sizing

Make sure you don’t stretch it at all when you install, otherwise the first cold day it will shrink. Thanks Chris, would hate for that to happen!

RE: RV Vinyl Trim Insert Sizing

Since you plan on replacing it pull it out of the track near the end and get a true measurement. Look at your end points as you may need to order some lapseal for the roof and proflex for the body ends. Ok thanks the trim I just pulled back is 1 inch in width. So then thats the size I need then just was not sure if they measured by the exposed trim size or the complete trim size including whats inserted into the track Thanks bob213

RV Vinyl Trim Insert Sizing

Hi the vinyl trim that covers the aluminum track on my older motorhome needs changing. Camco on Amazon lists 3/4" 1" and 1 1/4" My question be it likely a no brainer but from my attatched picture should I be ordering which size? Unsure if measured by the exposed size of the whole width of the insert including the bit that fits into the slots Thanks and have a great upcoming weekend! https://i.imgur.com/BkSGqFhl.jpg
